Excellent work Rachel.
I can imagine working with the blend of old with new was a little challenging and fiddly.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Thank you, Ron!  It took around 30 minutes to look everything over and make a plan.  About an hour of plaiting and it was fixed, then of course the waxing.  I just dropped strands and added strands as needed to meld the new in.

Thanks for the explanation.
Great job. Making something old and broken, functional again is a big deal.

Thank you, Julia!  I hope so, they are sanded to 1200 grit.  They still have a little few tool marks if you look close.
